Popcorn, Anyone?

I had an order for a customer who needed a birthday card for her father. I don't know about you....but I always find 'guy' cards the most difficult. Fortunately, I had just received my order from Paper Pretties, and it included this My Favorite Things stamp set. It made my job a lot easier!

The image was stamped on water colour paper with brown StazOn. I then water coloured the rug, the shirt, pants and popcorn bowl using my stamp pads from Close To My Heart. The television was coloured using my water colour crayons from Stampin' Up. The recliner was paper pieced and the popcorn bowl was popped up using a pop dot.
The sentiment was stamped with some random stamp I had on hand and the 'dad' is a rub-on. I then used two circle punches to punch out the 'dad' create a matte for it.
I used my word window for the brown tabs on either side of the card and the brads are over sized metallic brads from JoAnn Crafts 'essentials' line. The papers were from my scrap bin. Don't you love it when you have the perfect papers in your scrap bin?!
Edited to add: this sketch came from Saturday's sketch callenge over at
